If something is extremely rare, we say it happens “once in a blue moon.” But did you know that a blue moon occurs about once every 2.5 years? That’s hardly a benchmark for infrequency.

And that’s not the only thing we’ve long assumed to be a rarity either. Winning the lottery, love at first sight, and living to 100 are all more likely than you might’ve been led to believe, too.

Yes, so-called “rare” events happen all the time and these facts are proof!
